Mesquite Pancakes - 2013-090

Via Flickr:
Happy Easter to those who celebrate.

Mesquite pancakes are my latest favorite southwestern food. Served with vegan "butter" and real maple syrup makes for one tasty Easter breakfast. I'm in heaven!

Here's the recipe in case you are interested:

.5 C mesquite flour
.5 C corn meal (organic)
.5 C whole wheat flour
.5 tsp. salt
.5 tsp baking powder (or baking soda)
cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking
Mix all above in bowl.
Add your favorite milk to desired consistency (I used rice milk today, sometimes almond or soy) stirring it in a little at a time.
Proceed to cook as any other pancakes.

I sometimes add vegan chocolate chips for an extra yummy treat!

Peace to all.

Not sure if POTD as it is still early but inspiration struck and I acted. Happy Saturday!

EDIT: Yes, made this today's pic. Not up for playing with others I took later in the day - they will keep for sure.

Happy Easter!

Giraffe My Pretty - 2013-084

Via Flickr:
One of many giraffes in my collection.

I have a terrible cough that began Sunday with a sore throat and husky voice. Throat is better, voice is getting there, now it's in the lungs. Hopefully it will clear up quickly in this dry climate.

Also had to take my car in for maintenance and a recall today; after dropping it off at 8:00AM it wasn't finished until 6:00PM. At least the courtesy shuttle brought me home and picked me up again.

Hope you and your vehicles are healthy!

4th Ave. Rust -2013-082

Via Flickr:
I went to the 4th Ave. street fair today. I bought a mug (which may appear in a future picture) from a Tucson potter. I also picked up a ready-made sandwich at the Food Conspiracy Food Co-Op.

I kept walking south past the end of the tents and potties and continued through the underpass; on the east side is this water feature.
People have stuck small rocks into some of the openings as you can see in the left image.
I just loved the rust and water, but couldn't decide between these two - thus the dippy.

Happy weekend!

Peace to all.

Vegan Irish Soda Bread - 2013-074

Via Flickr:
The last time I made this bread, I was vegetarian but not vegan. I substituted soy milk (because that kind was open) with a little acid (used vinegar because that is what I had) for the buttermilk, and some ground flax seed meal for the egg.

I'll be bringing it to a party, so can't taste it just yet - hope it is as good as, or even better than, the original recipe.

Happy St. Pat's weekend!

And if you partake in adult beverages, green beer or otherwise, please do so responsibly.

Peace, Judi

Top - lantana seen on campus

Middle - Navajo rug discussion/sale

Bottom left - festive balloons against blue, blue sky entering Science City

Bottom right - Conrad J. Storad, children's author. His books are fun and educational. One of his books is "Don't Call Me Pig", all about javelinas. A few years ago I gave a copy of this book to my pseudo-granddaughter - who knew I'd see the author so many years later!

It was, all in all, a fun day with gorgeous weather.

Peace to all.

March Monsoon - 2013-067

Via Flickr:
Thunder and lightning earlier this morning! A fun winter storm.

This view from my back yard changed constantly throughout the day today as the storm cells came and went. For a while the mountains weren't even visible.

It's supposed to get cold here tomorrow, like 50s - not typical March weather for Tucson!

Peace to all.
